Demre – Kekova Tour Route

  • Demre Harbour

    Get ready for your action-packed day on the water! Make your way to Demre harbour in time to depart for the boat trip between 10 and 10.30 am.

  • Kekova Island and Sunken City

    Discover the fascinating secrets of Kekova’s history on this unique adventure around the Sunken City. The ancient city of Dolchiste was flooded due to an earthquake in the 2nd century, and its resulting underwater ruins never fail to leave an impression. Since this is a protected area, swimming is not permitted here, so what better way to explore the site than by cruising alongside the ruins on our glass-bottom boat, giving you the chance to capture unforgettable photos.

  • Simena Castle

    Our boat will drop anchor in Kaleköy port (ancient Simena) for one hour, giving you time to visit this small authentic village that’s home to castle ruins and a necropolis. A hike up the hillside will give you magnificent views of the Kekova region. If you’d prefer to admire Simena Castle from down below, you can use your remaining time to take another dip in the gorgeous blue waters.

  • Esmeralda Bay

    Time for a lunch and swim break at beautiful Esmeralda Bay where you can enjoy peace and tranquility during this fun journey.

  • Burç Bay

    Lunch is followed by a 40-minute swim break in Burç Bay. The sea is a little cooler in this area due to the cold underwater natural springs.

  • Gökkaya Bay

    We’ll stop to swim in Gökkaya Bay, where you can experience the natural beauty of the area and opt to participate in one of the various exciting water sports on offer.

  • Pirates Cave

    Discover this intriguing naturally-formed cave, which is renowned for its large size and curved entrance.

  • Karemlik Bay

    There are 8 known types of turtles worldwide, 5 of which can be found in the Mediterranean. At Karemlik Bay, you’ll have the chance to look for these majestic creatures in their natural habitat.
